IV Hydration Therapy Q&A

What is IV hydration therapy?

IV hydration therapy is an outpatient procedure that treats moderate to severe dehydration while flushing toxins from your system. The process is quick and pain-free and encourages optimal function of your vital organs like the liver and kidneys.

If you become dehydrated, the risk of potentially serious health problems increases. IV hydration restores the fluid levels throughout your body, bolstering your immune system and your body’s natural healing process.

Why might I need IV hydration therapy?

Supreme All Care Health and Wellness usually recommends IV hydration therapy to people experiencing moderate to severe dehydration. Telltale symptoms of dehydration include:

  • Reduced urine output
  • Dry lips and tongue
  • Dry eyes
  • Wrinkly skin
  • Rapid breathing

If you’re dehydrated, your hands or feet might also feel cool to the touch.

Dehydration affects people of all ages and genders, but it’s especially common in children and teens. Factors that contribute to dehydration include illnesses like the seasonal flu or stomach bugs and physical exertion like working out or playing sports in poorly ventilated areas or in direct sunlight. 

What does IV hydration therapy involve?

Supreme All Care Health and Wellness conducts IV hydration therapy on-site. At the beginning of your appointment, you sit down in a comfortable chair, and your provider inserts an IV line into a vein in your arm.

Next, your provider determines the type of fluid solution you need. Before making a recommendation, they consider several factors, including your age, health history, and the severity of your dehydration. Often, the IV solution contains a mixture of water, salt, sugar, and vitamins or minerals.

Your provider regulates the amount of fluid entering your body with an automated pump or adjustable valve. The length of your appointment depends on the severity of your symptoms and individual needs.

Is IV hydration therapy safe?

IV hydration therapy is safe and usually well-tolerated. Following treatment, it’s normal to experience some mild swelling or bruising at the IV insertion site. To minimize discomfort, apply an ice pack to the area or take over-the-counter pain medication.
